Murcia COVID-19 Restrictions and Travel Requirements for Spain.
Details correct at the time of publishing: Please note that there are restrictions at local, regional and national level within Spain.
Travelling to Spain:
The Spanish Government requires all arrivals to Spain from the UK (aged 12 or over) to present on entry one of the following:
- A Negative Covid-19 test (within 72 hours of arrival)
- Or Proof of being fully vaccinated (within 14 days prior to arrival)
- Complete a Health Control Form 48 hours before travel.
Returning from Spain:
For UK Nationals, Spain is on the AMBER List and travelers must follow the current guidelines when returning to the UK.
A negative Covid test for all travelers is required before returning to the UK and must be taken 3 days prior to travel*. After that, follow the guidance for the Amber list (or from the 19 July 2021 if you are fully vaccinated, follow the guidance for the Green List).
*A lateral Flow test can be taken at a pharmacy (Farmacia). An appointment may be required but the results are given in a couple of minutes. A certificate is received via email which will need to be printed and then presented at the airport on departure. The cost of the test is typically 30 euro.
It is the responsibility of each person travelling to ensure they are aware of the requirements for international travel. Please refer to your home country's official government website for the very latest requirements prior to travel.
Restrictions in Spain:
These vary from region to region but the most severe restrictions have been lifted and Spain's vaccination program is now progressing well.
Some long terms restrictions or mitigating measures will remain in place and the most likely will be the continued use of face coverings.
Face Coverings - There are some exemptions but On-The-Spot fines are enforced, so everyone visiting Spain should expect to wear a face mask when in public.
Some notable exemptions include:
Children under 6, those with a condition likely to be aggravated by the use of a mask, swimming and while undertaking sport outdoors.
While in a bar, café or restaurant, the face can be removed to eat and drink.
